The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is taking a stand against child abuse.

Wednesday, female leaders from the Church’s organizations for women, youth and children presented a $50,000 donation to the Children’s Justice Center (CJC).

The CJC offers victims of abuse a comfortable environment to share their stories with police and connects victims to counselors.

“We support everything that they do,” Cristina Franco, the Second Counselor in the Primary General Presidency said.

The CJC has 23 locations across the state. The funds will mostly be used to provide long awaited upgrades to facilities in rural areas.
